APLU, in partnership with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, has created a new Voluntary System of Accountability to enhance college and universities’ use of data for strategic planning and decision-making for colleges and universities across the country. To showcase the VSA’s new features, APLU is holding a webinar on Thursday, April 25 at 2pm EDT. Click here to register for the webinar.
The VSA is a robust and interactive analytics tool designed to provide analysis on a set of key performance metrics. Designed by institutions for institutions, the VSA allows users to explore benchmarking reports built from a national dataset containing more than 350 variables from over 4,200 institutions. Over 25 visualizations provide trend reports, and peer comparisons across metrics such as including enrollment, student success measures, financial aid, price, and expenditures.
The half-hour webinar will demonstrate: How to sign up for VSA; how to create visual reports; how to create custom comparison groups; how to download and print reports; and how to add users on your campus at no additional cost.
If you have questions about the webinar or the VSA, please contact Denise Nadasen. Institutions can also sign up for the VSA on the website.
